Metro Transit sent twelve to Houston for Super Bowl prep

In preparation for Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis next year, Metro Transit sent twelve representatives to Houston, Texas before Super Bowl LI to see how the city prepared for the event.

Janet Moore of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

The price tag was $22,881 — $10,852 of which was paid by the Department of Homeland Security. The remainder of $12,029 was covered by Metro Transit’s operating budget, according to spokesman Howie Padilla, who attended.

None of those traveling to Texas attended the game between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons, except for a police lieutenant who was at the stadium on game day working on a special program with other law enforcement.
